Bancroft Beer  |  2.5 / 4 / 6

Our daily drinker, named after the street our humble brewery rests on. Brewed with 2-row and Maris Otter malt. Singularly hopped with Mosaic. Punchy notes of Satsuma orange rind, lychee flesh, and fresh blueberry muffin with a clean and crisp finish. 4.20% abv

Bancroft with friends? How about a pitcher?  |  18

Silk Upholstered Chair  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Silk Upholstered Chair is one of our all time favorite winter warmers. Unfiltered Vienna lager brewed with German pilsner and vienna malts married with chamomile and local honey. Fermented low and slow with our house lager strain. This year features deep rich Fall Harvest honey from our friends Greg and Kara of Mind Your Hives/Kara Jo Beefarm, sourced from mindfully kept hives just Northwest of the city. And as always, dried chamomile flowers from the spice treasure trove over at Penn Herb Co. in NoLibs. Pint fulls of liquid Honey Nut Cheerios, persimmon, and hearth baked bread, with our typical lean mineral finish. 5.2% abv

Dark Matter Indicator  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Smoked porter brewed with German beechwood smoked malt along with handful of specialty dark malts. Lean and clean with notes of backyard BBQ’s, blazing bonfires on the beach, and faint whisps of bittersweet cacao. 4.8% abv

Chadwick  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

OG Philly-style Porter brewed with a special blend of roasty malts over layers of 2-row, Munich, Vienna, and Maris Otter. Hopped with East Kent Goldings and fermented with our house ale strain. Rich notes of toffee, bittersweet chocolate covered espresso beans, and that classic English Earl Grey tea finish. 6% abv

Gravy  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Extra thicc IPA brewed with American grown 2-row and white wheat. Mash hopped with Amarillo, SImcoe in the kettle, and fermented with our fruity House ale strain. Dry hopped at 3.5# per barrel with the almighty Nelson Sauvin from the mystical country of New Zealand. Crazy mouthfeel and rocky dense head with an abundance of pineapple punch flavors, Juicy Fruit frozen cocktails, and an underlying pink grapefruit current running throughout. Here in South Philly, we call it Gravy! 7% abv

Extra Huy  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

After a long hiatus, it’s back! And with a little extra kick. Our Vietnamese Coffee Stout brewed with boat loads of roasty toasty malts, lactose for that creamy condensed milk sweetness, and the same coffee as your favorite Pho joint. As we are want to do, we like to mix it up sometimes and this batch features an amped up malt profile with a little extra booze coming in at 7%. Dark chocolate covered espresso beans, freshly ground dark roast, a hint of woody smoke, with a silky smooth finish. NITRO! *contains dairy!!!*

Capricious Curator  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

IPA brewed with continental pilsner malt and domestic white wheat. Hopped with Amarillo in the mash and kettle then massively dry hopped with Simcoe, Cashmere, and East Kent Golding after fermentation with our house ale yeast.  Notes of strawberry shortcake, vibrant citrus, and delightful grassy notes contributed by the EKG. 6.2% abv

Bourbon Barrel aged Oat Nog (750mL bottle)  |  22

Imperial Oat Milk Stout brewed with nutmeg and Five Spice and LOTS of oat milk (yup, a vegan milk stout!). Originally brewed in the winter of 2021. After nine full moons, our vision has come to life just in time for the season. Bourbon Barrel Aged Oat Nog is a warming tipple over flowing with notes of brown booze soaked oak, chocolate covered toffee, and a crushed Red Hot rim – it stokes the inner flame. 9% abv. We’re happy to finally share this year long endeavor with you all. *750mL bottles only, share with a friend!

Milanville Rouge (6oz wine glass)  |  6

Our version of a framboise, barrel aged mixed fermentation saison aged on 3 different years worth of raspberries from our farm. Beautifully nuanced, sour without being cloying. This beer is drinking really nicely right now. Do not miss if you’re a fan of barrel sours. 6.2% abv

Pět Pils  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

 Pět, meaning “five” in Czech, honors the first batch of Pilsner ever brewed by Josef Groll on October 5th, 1842 which gave way to what has become the most popular and highly engineered beer style in the world. Typically we choose a different single noble hop varietal for each batch, but for this one we revisited the original, Saaz. We also sourced true Czech pilsner malt to make this batch an unabashed, unfiltered, rustic Bohemian Pils. Lagered for many moons, this pils is brimming with classic crackery malt under layers of grassy spice, herbal tea, and a hint of lemon. 5% abv

Big Hill Standard Cider  |  5 / 7

Beautiful, straightforward cider from our friends in Central PA. 5.5%abv

Lil’ Buddy  |  5

Our version of the “Citywide” – a 10oz Bancroft with a shot of bourbon
